Rick Kaplan, the agent for Marcus Camby, pounded the Knicks for their handling of former general manager Glen Grunwald, stripped of his duties four days before training camp. The Knicks have brought back their former executive, Steve Mills, to be their new president/general manager after Grunwald retooled the club all summer. Kaplan goes way back with Grunwald, to when Camby was in Toronto. “Steve is a great guy, but Glen’s firing is absurd,’’ Kaplan stated in a text message Friday morning to The Post. “He did a great job in a challenging environment. Turns out it was a thankless job.’’ New York Post

Felton pointed to the elderly bench of Rasheed Wallace, Kurt Thomas, Marcus Camby and Jason Kidd, who fell apart in the playoffs, as part of the team’s ultimate undoing, getting KO’d in the second round by the Pacers. With training camp opening Monday, none of those players are back. Three of them have retired. “We’re a younger team this year,’’ Felton said at an Under Armour appearance at Macy’s in Herald Square. “Kurt Thomas, Rasheed, love them like brothers. [But] those guys were 38, 39, 40 years old. Once they got injuries, they’re out and it hurt us last year. We’ve added Metta [World Peace], [Andrea] Bargnani, Kenyon [Martin] and Amar’e [Stoudemire] are coming back. Tim Hardaway [Jr.] looks great by the way. I’ve been most impressed with him. It gives us depth at that big spot and youth. Those guys are younger." New York Post

"Ten years ago, no," Camby said of signing on to a team that just acquired Howard. "Now, I just got off the phone with him. He's a great guy. Even before I signed, when I got my buyout in Toronto, he was one of the guys that was texting and calling me, trying to sell me on Houston. I told him he didn't have to. I still have a lot to offer to the game, not just playing, but with my mind and all the battles and all the years I've been through, being placed in a situation we have a chance of winning with the talent we have on this team with Dwight and of course James (Harden) and Chandler (Parsons) and all the young guys we have."

"I can still play," Camby said. "I can still be productive out there. I'm a guy that's not going to command a lot of shots. I bring my hard hat every night. I just want to play defense and rebound and lead by example. I still feel fresh and ready to go. At this stage of my career, I'm not worried about minutes. I just want to be a part of something special." Houston Chronicle
